Unfortunately, it was inevitable and we knew it was going to happen sometime in the near future just not this soon but Lindsey got word yesterday that he is getting laid off.
"T-Mobile announced Thursday that they will close two Texas call centers while consolidating operations from 24 to 17 facilities by the end of June.
The Texas call centers are in Frisco and Brownsville. The other five call centers are in Allentown, Pa.; Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; Lenexa Kan.; Thornton, Colo. and Redmond, Ore.
The Dallas Business Journal said the Frisco call center will result in the loss of more than 600 jobs!
The seven closures will result in 1,900 terminations out of the 3,300 people employed at the seven call centers. The remaining 1,400 can apply for positions at the other 17 call centers with relocation assistance."
So we have about 90 days to find Lindsey a new job. If he decides to stick it out until the end, which will be June 22nd he will get severance but that's kind of a hard decision... do we wait for the severance or does he go ahead and start looking and take his first available option (if there is one and God help us that there will be b/c our house is ready and we just bought a new truck!)????
He said it was a very haunting and sad moment... they brought every single T-Mobile employee together and told them all at the same time and he said everyone was in total shock and that grown men were balling. So sad. :(

I'm two days early... but that's okay. Nothing is going to change in 2 days and that's b/c nothing has changed in a month. NOT.A.SINGLE.THING.HAS.CHANGED. I haven't lost an inch or a single pound. But that also could be due to the fact that we had 3 weeks of flu in our house so that equaled 3 weeks of doing nothing but taking care of sick kiddos and then lying around myself. Kennedy had it first about 3 weeks ago and then Elvis caught it and then me. No bueno. But on a good note... I haven't gained either! :) So back to grind. This week I've already done a ton of walking... 9+ miles in 3 days. I've done The Shred. On top of trying to get back to eating better.
